The mercury has dropped and winter has arrived in Sydney; a month of rain and chilly temperatures has dampened the city’s spirits, not to mention left outdoor barbecues unused and gathering dust. If you’re a
meat-lover who has abandoned al fresco cooking in favour of staying warm indoors, you can now have your meat and eat it at Sydney’s Brazilian-style BBQ restaurant Churrasco.
A style of cooking created by ‘Gauchos’ – the South American cowboys who herded cattle in Brazil over 400 years ago – Churrasco dishes see the highest quality cuts of beef, chicken, lamb and pork marinades for hours,
even days, in delicious Brazilian sauces and spices, and roasted over a flaming pit and sliced from huge skewers ‘rodizio style’ at your table. Delicious delicacies including Rump cap with ginger and soy, sirloin steak crusted with
peppers and spices, and lamb rumps with lemon and oregano are all available to choose from via the restaurants ‘all you can eat’ service – and with sides thrown in and a price of only $44 per head, this is one gourmet BBQ you couldn’t even attempt to recreate at home.
The constant array of food is just half the fun at Churrasco; a lively atmosphere and South American beats transports diners to the bustling streets of Brazil, and if you’re in the mood to kick start your party, Churrasco’s cocktail bar will get you off on the right foot with refreshing Caipirinha’s – the national cocktail of Brazil.
Winter needn’t be BBQ free with Churrasco on the scene; restaurants are located in Sydney’s William Street (minutes from Kings Cross), Coogee, and Caringbah.
